    I don't have a digital camera. If there are forum members in HK who are prepared to come and take some pictures of my version of the "broken grip", I will be glad to oblige. I have at least 6 racquets with this grip.

    I still play the game socially, about 4 times weekly, mainly in Tuen Mun.
    Actually, you can try to fashion the "broken" grip yourself. It can be easily done.
    All you need is to get a 3M Nexcare athletic wrap, 3" x 5 yards, from either Mannings or Watsons. Just cut a pc of the athletic wrap and wrap it around the barren wooden handle thinly, not more than one layer. You then wrap a proper grip over the center of the athletic grip, leaving out about 2" at the cone end and about 1/2" at the butt end. You will then have a "broken" handle or grip of about 2" at the cone end and about 1/2" at the butt end.
    The end result is similar to having a contoured handle or grip, with the middle section being the largest and thickest, the top cone section for your thumb and index finger being thinner, and the bottom section at the butt end thin enough for you to hold the racquet with the last 3 fingers firmly.

    That sounds very easy to replicate. It is just like putting on two layers of grip tape isn't it, just that the first layer directly on the wood is very thin and the second layer will just sit on it.

    Yes, it is that simple. That is the basic wrap and you can do a few variations of your own, but the objective is to have a contoured handle/grip. In other words, the middle part of the handle is the thickest and should be about the width of your closed fist (4"-5") with the top section at the cone end and the bottom section at the butt end thinner/slimmer.
    One variation is to omit the athletic tape on the middle section and just wrap it on the top and bottom "bare" sections, thus saving some of the wrap. Another is to increase the butt cap diameter by wrapping a layer of cork and then wrap over with athletic tape and extend it about 1/2" to 1" to the wooden handle. Or you can omit the use of the athletic tape and leave alone the bare wood, but this will not give you the friction of the athletic tape.

    Check out his thumb and index finger! (save and magnify) Well not so sure now about his index finger but thumb is heavily taped.

    One more (for Kiko). Already looks like the current one ...

    from 1:05 on,

    It looks like he grips his towelgrip with a bit of overlap, from up close it looks pretty hideous...

    another attempt, here's a pic.

    It looks like there's some overlap, (and also, it looks like he wraps it like a right-hander. I though lefty's wrapped there grip the other 'direction')

    I use a similar grip, just not as ugly as LD also the wood quality isnt the same, when i once tried to remove the factory tape the wood splintered badly :/ so i apply a second very thin layer of tape and then the towel grip. every 4-5 times i change the towel, i also have to change the base grip 'cause theres so much glue and towel left...

    Who is the Japanese guy ? Sasaki ?

    I am using a slightly modified LD grip, but using SuperGrap, I am switching to towel grip soon, so I want to see how it will with with Towel grip, probably the same. I have never needed to use tape on my thumb though.
